In November 2017, the district of Uelzen began the comprehensive expansion of the fibre optic network with a total route length of 1,400 km. Horizontal drilling for trenchless line laying is planned for around 310 km of this route. This will produce about 28,000 t of drilling mud, which will have to be disposed of. The waste management company of the district of Uelzen has decided to build a treatment plant for the recycling of these drilling muds. The prerequisite for construction and operation is an immission control permit from the Lüneburg Trade Supervisory Office:
Client: Waste management company of the district of Uelzen
Total project duration: Total project duration: 11/2017 - 07/2019
BIG's share of benefits:
The waste management company of the district of Uelzen commissioned BIG with the immission control application procedure both for the temporary interim storage of drilling mud on the landfill site and for the construction and operation of the treatment plant. The assigned tasks also included the implementation of the parallel building law and water law approval procedure, the amendment procedure for the land use plan to secure the land use planning for the expansion area, as well as the initiation and quality assurance of the planning and specialist planning contributions, in particular for the impact regulation and the compensation concept. Due to the plant configuration, which has not yet been implemented anywhere in Germany in this constellation, there was a high level of coordination with both the specialist authorities involved and the licensing authority, which was prepared, coordinated and professionally supported by BIG.
